The attached PDF created with the attached python program display
differently in many different PDF viewers.

pycairo version: 1.8.6
cairo library version: 1.8.8

Evince: correct
Acrobat reader 7: only shows the correct results with the white mask
(bottom row).
Acrobat reader 9: correct
Preview Mac OS X 10.5: wrong (I don't remember what)
Preview Mac OS X 10.6: correct
gv: 3.6.7 (gs: 8.70) wrong: the whole right column is gone

Where: "correct" == "the output is the same as the PNG output from cairo"

My biggest problem is acrobat 7 as my RIP uses acrobat 7 libraries.

Does anyone know why this is? What do you use to render cairo pdf-files?

Groeten, Arjen
